City of Puebla

May 5th is approaching and people are getting ready to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo is observed annually to remember the Mexican Army's triumph over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla which took place on May 5, 1862. The reason why Cinco de Mayo is momentous is because the Mexican Army was way outnumbered and they were still able to get a victory. 

Nowadays, not only Mexicans celebrate this holiday, but Americans and others all around the world celebrate as well. There are so many great places to celebrate this festive holiday. Here a few places to consider:

Puebla is Mexico's fourth-largest city which celebrates May 5 as a major holiday, with the city shutting down to memoralize the 1862 battle. Puebla is a wonderful city to visit anytime of the year. The Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhutal volcanoes are close to the city. To celebrate, the city displays a battle reenactment and also has military parade with beautiful floats and dancers. The festivities continues with plenty  of food, drink, music and dancing.
